    Alright, as many of you know, I just recently started posting frequently. I was looking for the correct place to kick-off this thread but when I looked in "Destee.TV" thinking it would be the right place for a documentary I see nothing but music-videos I thought would be in the "Entertainment" section. Oh well, please excuse if I mistakenly posted this in the wrong place.

    (facepalm)

    Why didn't this reporter/journalist help him out just a little bit?

    When he mentioned the Central Park 5 case from 1989, it seemed to be going ok until he claims:

    "the murder of a white woman in Central Park"

    What!?



    Here, from CNN's own blurb...

    Member of 'Central Park 5' blasts Trump
    The 1989 crime -- in which a 28-year-old banker who had been jogging at night in Central Park was raped, bludgeoned with a rock and was found hours later, tied up, stripped and suffering from hypothermia and brain damage -- shook the city and exacerbated racial tensions.

    There were no witnesses to the attack. The victim had no memory of it, and DNA evidence was in its infancy and was not presented at the trial. The five youths were convicted almost exclusively on their confessions, which they testified were coerced by detectives.

    Giuliani: Trump Has A “Pretty Solid Basis” For Saying Central Park Five Are Guilty
    “Do I agree with him that those people were criminals and engaged in criminal activity? Yes. I don’t know the case, it wasn’t my case. I can’t tell you all the details of it. They confessed. Their alibi is they were beating someone else up, which I think is pretty weird.”
